Vaśānugā (वशानुगा) refers to “being under control”, according to the Parākhyatantra verse 2.60-61.—Accordingly: while discussing śiva’s transmental nature: “That power which leads the bound soul to the reality-level that is beyond the mind and devoid of support is taught to be the power Manonmanī that belongs to the god Manonmana. That which suddenly brings souls in this world to a state of mindlessness is taught in this [Tantra] to be [the power] Unmanī, who is in the control (vaśānugā) of [a Rudra called] Unmana”.
